    Hi I have a jpeg image of a logo that needs to be changed to a psd and eps editable version. I tried normal conversion software online the image file types where converted but where not vector based. If someone could please help me to change the file format to PSD and EPS and it be vector based so the logo can be enlarged without becoming pix-elated that would help me ever so greatly

    Thank you in advance

    Don't think it can be coverted with the drop shadow / blur effect. The image would need to be redone in PS illustrator or a similiar vector program.

    do you mean the shading in the white part of the image or the logo itself will have to be done over in PS illustrator?

    the logo itself. the Y, tt and the d

    PS: I see no white in the image posted. The letters show on a light grey background with a slight gradient effect.

    It can be enlarged without pixelation ...
    But it'll have to be redrawn to enlarge it at a higher resolution.

    It'll have to be recreated in a vector format (dimensionless) so it can be enlarged without loosing resolution.
    Would something like this help ??? ... What size do you want it ???

    Hi Noyb

    Nice rendition, but the original has more of a drop shadow effect. Maybe the OP will be thrilled.

    From what I have read that type of effect can be done in vector but wether it would remain scaleable I don't know.

    I don't have Illustrator but have played with Inkscape just a bit but don't feel confident with it yet.

    just interested in anymore thoughts you have..

    I don't know how to do it in Vector .. Darnit.
    That was just a quickie in Photoshop using layer effects .. Could have used a drop shadow instead .. (That was just a flip of the coin)

    As you said earlier, It will have to be recreated.
    The alternative to creating it in a dimensionless vector format so it can be enlarged .....
    Is to create it in a raster format at a resolution (pixel count) larger than needed .. Then it can always be downsized or edited.
    I don't think converting raster (psd) to vector (eps) is an answer.
